Game Developers Found Common Language with Pirates

Game Developers Found Common Language with Pirates

SUPERBEAT XONiC developers have recently discovered that links to cracked versions of their game were shared on Reddit. Instead of suing pirates, they thanked them for interest shown and offered a discount on top.

As you know, few copyright holders will be happy to see their content shared for free, especially if their income basically depends on it. However, fight against pirates is usually counterproductive – perhaps, this is why a studio behind the popular game SUPERBEAT XONiC decided to take different approach and confront pirates with positivity.

After the developers found out the links to pirated copies of their game posted in subreddits, they joined the discussion with kind words and a discount offer. Pirates were pleasantly surprised by the response and posted only positive comments. Although it is unlikely that PM Studios really liked the fact that people were downloading their game without paying for it, it is clear that they see pirates as potential customers. And they are basically right, because the most prolific pirates usually buy a lot of games as well.

The chances are that the game developers got a few extra purchases instead of expensive litigation, with a number of self-proclaimed pirates suggesting that they now plan to purchase the game. Some of them explain they come to Reddit to find a game download and give it a good run, because demos don’t always sway purchasing decisions in the right way.

Such positive response response from the game developers is a relatively rare sight. Reddit users hope than others will follow suit.

ShinTarGuar avatarI wonder if anyone mentioned the fact that the reason most media is so expensive, to allow for the profit margin due to pirating copies of the product... I never used to pirate until I started having to pay for a what if it gets pirated fee.. I say if they were realistically priced no one would bother to pirate anything.. idiots.
